More than 2,500 miles from the Mexican border, opponents and supporters of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who spoke Sunday at a Republican gathering in Nashua, didn’t need a fence to divide them. They found a six-lane roadway.

Stationed across from the Crowne Plaza hotel on Route 101A, nearly 70 demonstrators welcomed Arpaio, known as the nation’s toughest sheriff for his work to fight illegal immigration in Maricopa County, Ariz. Demonstrators included the AFSC's Arnie Alpert and Maggie Fogarty.
